Tony La Russa in Pale Hose Talk Posted 7 hours ago · Report reply 2 hours ago, southsider2k5 said: TLRs age isn't even as big of a deal as the fact that things have changed A LOT since he was last in the dugout. Hell he could lose half the team on day 1 with his anthem stance. I think there is also an energy issue. TLR was very involved in 2018 w Cora and his staff but that was a consultant. If JR is enamored w Tony, maybe he adds him as a consultant who can assist a younger manager. Just not sure TLR has the ability to be a full time manager at 76.
